    Our Powershot A70 is going exactly the same thing. I can view old pictures, but can not take any new ones, the screen is just blank.....

    Same problem. If I bang on the camera a bit sometimes the screen will turn on. This is not a good solution.

Canon has posted a free repair recall of several models (including the A70), due to faulty connections of the LCD screen. The repair will be made regardless of warranty status:

Iam unable to view the pictures I took with my former Easyshare. It says unreconized-file format. Is there a way I can view the pictures taken with my old camera?


Many cameras will not display pictures that were taken with a different type of camera. You should still be able to view those pictures on the original camera, a computer, or a digital photo frame.

If I may make a gentle suggestion, use your camera to take pictures. To display them, use something better suited for the task.

Optio E30 unable to download photos?


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use ACDSee or any other photo cataloging program.
